The psychology of mean bosses is so fascinating you'll wish this 2-minute video was 20 minutes long.

Every mean boss ever. Think about it.


When a person has power, they're less likely to be considerate of others.

Doesn't that explain, like, everything?

We all saw it in high school.


In college.

At work.

And it explains just about everything we know about Justin Bieber.

Clearly, it doesn't take much to start these behaviors. All the researchers did in this study was give a few cookies to someone with completely artificial power.

People who feel powerful — even if it's fake power — feel more free to be mean. They probably don't even realize how mean they're being.

What should you do if your boss is a cookie monster?

I don't want to get all MBA on you, but managing up is a thing. By putting some thought into what makes your cookie monster think, you can nudge them into being less, well, monstrous.

Are you a boss? Don't be a cookie monster.

If you've ever been at the mercy of a power-tripping boss, the best thing you can do when you become someone's boss is remember how crappy it made you feel so you can treat your employees with dignity.

Part of your job as Head-[insert noun here]-in-Charge, is to make sure you're getting the best out of your team. (Notice I didn't say "most.") Take some time to brush up on your people-management skills and remember that everyone who works for you is a person who deserves consideration.

A disabled dog with no front legs can now run and play thanks to a 12-year-old volunteer at an animal shelter who built her a wheelchair out of Legos.

One-year-old Gracie was dumped at a veterinary clinic when she was a baby. She was covered in maggots and was missing hair under her eyes and on her feet and tail. She was also missing her two front legs due to a birth defect.

The vet reached out to a local rescue called Mostly Mutts Animal Rescue, in Kennesaw, Georgia, who took Gracie in to help her find a new home. The Turley family, who runs the shelter, loved Gracie so much, they decided to adopt her for themselves.

Gracie loves to play with her fur siblings, including a dog who is paralyzed in his hind legs and likes to pull her around, and on who has three legs. While Gracie can get around OK on her own two hind legs, her mom, Tammy, was worried about her getting injured so they enlisted the help of Dylan, 12, a volunteer at the shelter.

A young doctor has taken to TikTok, the new social media app popular among Gen. Z, to share information about important health issues, including the negative side effects of vaping.

When she first joined the platform six months ago, she initially started sharing videos about her hectic life as a resident. But whenever she'd share videos with medical facts, she noticed more comments and likes.

Gina Rodriguez doesn't exactly have a great track record when it comes to talking about black representation. There was that time when she (incorrectly) said that Latina actresses are paid less than black actresses. Or that time when she interrupted an interviewer for saying her co-star, Yara Shahidi, was a role model to black women. Or that time when she tried to make "Black Panther" about her. Now, Rodriguez is under heat again, this time for rapping the n-word and being "sorry, not sorry" about it.

Rodriguez posted an Instagram story of herself singing along to "Read or Not" by the Fugees while getting her hair and make-up done. In the short video, she can be seen singing the lyrics, including the n-word, and laughing. Rodriguez deleted the video quickly, but not quick enough. Twitter was, to say the least, not pleased.

There's nothing like a good reunion story to get you misty in the ol' tear ducts. Kate Howard, the managing editor of Kentucky Center for Investigative Reporting, shared a story of randomly running into the dog she used to foster on Twitter. You know all those dog reunion movies? The ones with names like A Dog's Hope and A Dog's Sloppy Kiss? The ones that make you cry buckets no matter how hard you think your heart is? Well, this is that, but in real life.
